Just six months from it first hitting UK supermarket shelves, innovative US chilled, fresh pet food brand FreshpetTM has performed a number of acts of kindness by donating some of its cat and dog food to UK animal shelters, following the huge success of a similar ongoing initiative in the USA.
Freshpet has pledged to donate more of its chilled, batch-cooked, fresh dog and cat food to other animal charities across the UK. The brand is now asking the public to nominate charities close to their hearts on social media, to be considered for deliveries.
Cathal Walsh, European MD of Freshpet comments: “Our team at Freshpet is dedicated to donating fresh meals to shelters and rescues as often as we can. We know that fresh pet food makes a difference to the lives of dogs and cats, and can help make pets even more adoptable.
“Our shelter and rescue partners already span across the United States and now we hope to match this success in the UK too. These shelters are hard-working, kind and giving organisations filled with animal-lovers. We’re proud to work with such incredible groups dedicated to finding loving homes for pets in need.”
Freshpet has donated over 2 million fresh meals to date in the USA, to over 100 shelters and rescues, and those numbers will continue to grow on both sides of the pond.
The public can nominate a charity by visiting the Freshpet Facebook page or by tweeting them at @Freshpet.
